Raw Food Recipe: Chocolate Truffles


makes about 24 truffles ~ $.38 per truffle



This is a very basic and super simple chocolate truffles recipe. It's perfect for holiday treats and even works well for gift giving. 


ingredients 
  • 2 cups almonds ($5.00) 
  • 1 ½ cups dates, pitted and chopped ($3.00) 
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder ($1.20) 
  • Cocoa powder for rolling


directions
  • In a food processor fitted with an “S” blade, process the almonds until finely ground. This takes a minute or so.
  • Add in the dates and cacao powder.
  • Process again until the mixture begins to clump together.
  • Using a tablespoon, scoop out even sized balls, and roll between hands to shape.
  • Roll each truffle lightly in cocoa powder.

Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Makes about 24 truffles.

  1. These are so easy but taste so expensive. I made some for my non raw friends. You don't have to worry about how long they will store because they will be gone long before that. I really like showing my husband that these are also low-cost. I did have some extra shredded coconut that I rolled them in to add to the festivities. Yummy stuff you keep posting! Thanks!

  2. I totally want to try these. I have a weakness for truffles, but obviously the traditional version should not be consumed on a regular basis. ;)
